Linked to the history of the city of Bilbao

The all-new Starbucks store in Bilbao is located at one of the most outstanding sites in the city. Right at the beginning of calle Navarra, the location is a mandatory passageway to Gran Vía, the nerve and entertainment center for locals and the thousands of visitors that arrive in the capital of Biscay each day. 

The store has 170 m2 of floor space and features elements of the jewelry store that once occupied the premises on the outside and inside. There is a precious amethyst wall behind the central counter which can be seen from the door and a magnificent chandelier hanging from the ceiling that offer a link to the history of the city of Bilbao.
